Is the theme for our PARISH-WIDE POTLUCK DINNER–Sunday, April 24, at 6:00 pm. COME ONE, COME ALL—and bring something to share with your St Andrew’s family! If you’d like, you can let us know what you’ll be bringing by signing up on the list in the Parish Hall…
POWERFUL TOOLS FOR CAREGIVERS
is a free series for those who work a full day and have the unique challenge of caregiving family members, or others, as well. The next series will run Monday evenings beginning May 9, through June 20, at 6:00—8:00 pm, in the Recreation Room at Windemere. All participants must pre-register at 1-508-560-6012 or online at powerfultoolsMV2016@gmail.com.
OUR ANNUAL PARISH PICNIC IS SUNDAY, MAY 15 AT THE SAILING CAMP (off Barnes Road, Oak Bluffs), following our 10:00 worship. (It’s also the Day of Pentecost, so wear RED!) We’ll have our traditional BBQ of dogs and burgers, and everyone is encouraged to bring a side dish, salad or dessert to share. COME JOIN US TO CELEBRATE TOGETHER—AND FEEL FREE TO BRING A FRIEND OR TWO!
THE NEXT NEIGHBORHOOD CONVENTION
is Tuesday, May 3 at 11:00 am, at the West Tisbury Congregational Church, and everyone is invited to bring a bag lunch and greet friends from faith communities all over the island. The speakers will be the volunteer leaders from the island’s new HOSPITALITY HOMES program, who will impart insights and information, and answer questions, about this winter’s experience, as well as the program’s intentions for 2017.
WE HAVE A NEW ORGANIST AND CHOIRMASTER!
His name is Griffin McMahon, and he’s recently graduated from Juilliard School of Music. The Search Committee is so excited that God has brought Griffin to us! We’ll be welcoming Griffin for his first Sunday on June 19, 2017, so please be sure to be with us, to hear Griffin’s magic, and help to make him feel at home!
A MEMORIAL SERVICE
will be held at St Andrew’s Church on Monday, May 2 at 2:00 pm, for Anne Luedeman, a friend to many at St Andrew’s, who passed away earlier this year.
